A Megalithic Marvels World-Wide Exclusive
By Mark A. Carpenter
In 2008, from the frozen womb of Denisova Cave in Siberia’s Atlai Mountains, scientists emerged with a staggering discovery. From this frigid subterranean wasteland, they unearthed remains of mysterious human ancestors known as “Denisovans.” These enigmatic hominids lived over fifty-thousand years ago, interbred with Homo sapiens as well as Neanderthals, and we now know… were giants. Ancient traditions worldwide universally recount the coexistence between our species and archaic giants, trolls, dwarves, orcs, etc. Despite coy secrecy by these scientists, the finds vindicate millennia of “myths” from around the world.
In the 1970s, Russian paleontologist Nikolai Ovodov was the first scientist to investigate the cave where the Atlai Mountains form the natural border between Russia and Kazakhstan. Then in 2008, it was Russian scientist Michael Shunkov who made the gigantic find. Some of these teeth are gargantuan, measuring over twice the length, diameter, and volume of an average Homo sapien molar. DNA analysis revealed that the tooth was neither Homo sapien nor Neanderthal, revealing a new species of human hominid ancestor, hence “Denisovans.”
Once word spread of this discovery, American and Canadian scientists swooped in with millions in grant money bulging from their pockets, they seized control of the genetic analysis and public relations narrative. The top-tier experts involved came from institutions such as the Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, the University of Toronto and Harvard University. In a surreal demonstration of brazen vacillating, these scientists acknowledge all the scientific wonder regarding the find, except for the one, most obvious, most mind-shattering part – that this hominid was gigantic to the point of mythical validation. They repeatedly make juvenile statements that omit this fact, like when Bence Viola from the University of Toronto says “large teeth with massive roots would probably require massive jaws.” As an update to Viola’s feeble “probably,” correspondingly enormous jawbones have since been discovered in China. And yet again, the consortium of authorities whom we rely on to educate us, fails to announce what they have discovered… that giants existed!
In 2015, within the PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America), the entire study was published entitled “Nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences from two Denisovan individuals.” A month later, Danny Lewis of the Smithsonian published “DNA from Huge Tooth Confirms a New Ancient Cousin.” National Geographic broke their version of the narrative, with a title that can only be described as absurd “DNA Reveals Mysterious Human Cousin With Huge Teeth.” The headline inanely suggests that the teeth of the hominid were somehow disproportionately large compared to its own size … instead of simply acknowledging that the hominid itself was huge.
Teeth and mandibles are the most common remains found in all primate specimens, as such, the anatomical relationship between teeth, mandibles, craniums, and overall skeletal size, have been subject to intense study for over a century. Oceans of ink have been spilled in countless, peer-reviewed reports about the corresponding ratios between these features. These papers are root-canal painful to read, filled with odonatological jargon – no need to endure that torture.
In essence, a large tooth means a large jawbone, and a large jawbone means a large skull, which means a large torso…
It is that simple, and this was alluded to by Viola.
The Smithsonian article is a must read as the discoveries and omissions contained within point to a profound intersection of modern science and ancient tradition. “The world at that time must have been far more complex than previously thought,” said Sawyer to NatGeo. “Who knows what other hominids lived and what effects they had on us?” In this next excerpt, the scientists sheepishly acknowledge the stark parallels between the discoveries and the ancient traditions that have captivated the collective consciousness for so long. “The Denisovans were more closely related to Neanderthals, having diverged from Homo sapiens about 500,000 years ago. Yet genetic scans suggest that Denisovans interbred with both Neanderthals and Homo sapiens, as well as a fourth unknown species,” Sarah Kaplan wrote for the Washington Post. “That suggests the human world was “a lot like Middle-Earth,” said molecular anthropologist Todd Disotell, who perhaps, was more free with his tongue because he was not directly involved in the study. “There you’ve got elves and dwarves and hobbits and orcs” (orcs were man-eating giants btw).
At this point in the article, the familiar undertow of institutional slithering can be detected: “Paleontologists still don’t know exactly what the Denisovans looked like, but they did have teeth so big that at first they were mistaken for cave bear teeth.” It is true that with such limited remains, there is only so much that can be determined. But this fact has never prevented evolutionary anthropologists from making bold proclamations about allegedly bipedal apes from a million years prior, and who yielded similarly scant specimens. In the case of Gigantopithecus Blacki, only teeth, and one, single mandible have ever been discovered. The Gigantopithecus teeth are smaller than the Denisovan, as is the jawbone, and this did not prevent the very same institutions from determining that this ancient primate was a nine-foot-tall, four-to-six hundred kilogram, extinct species of orangutan. No such size-estimation model has been created for Denisovans, why? Fact is, the Denisovans were giants, they know it, they are downplaying it hard, and this constitutes blatant, scientific misconduct.
Scientists are refusing to acknowledge that Denisovans do not fit into their Darwinian, ape-to-man narrative of human evolution. These were no obsolete ape-men, fresh in from Africa. These were the legendary, savage, gigantic, warlords of superhuman might, violence, and dark power. They were dreaded and even worshiped by Homo sapiens – enshrined in myths, songs, and stones around the prehistoric globe.
What are the true implications of these discoveries? It means the myriad of ancient giant accounts must be reexamined as useful guides to human history. Does this confirm every ancient dogma concerning giants verbatim? Of course not; however, it does bring ancient traditions crashing into scientific reality. The Chinese mythical giant the Yeren, and the Mansi Culture of Siberia’s Menk, the Biblical Nephilim, and many more, are no longer to be regarded as ancient fiction, but as scientific fact. Disotell said it best, that “it was a lot like Middle Earth.” Indeed it was, with that in mind, maybe Tolkien was not simply writing fiction when he wrote “Some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth.”
